Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers says he expects his strikers to simply get on with their job and makes it clear he has no tolerance for egos.

Brendan Rodgers has warned Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge that there is no room for egos at ­Liverpool.

The Kop boss insists there is no “main man” at Anfield – and that ­Liverpool’s bid to break back into the ­Champions League will be built around a team ethic rather than the individual ­brilliance of his two top strikers.

With Suarez serving a 10-match ban Sturridge has emerged as the Reds’ match-winner with three goals in three successive 1-0 victories as Liverpool have built the only 100 per cent record in the Premier League.

But Suarez is set to return for the Capital One Cup clash at Manchester United in 10 days’ time – and Rodgers is certain both the Uruguayan and Sturridge will bend to his will.

Rodgers said: “Neither Luis or Daniel will be the main man. This isn’t the type of club for egos. It’s a club where players get told where to play.

“We don’t mollycoddle them here. They are all expected to come in and do a job. If they want to be the superstar if they want to be the individual then they can go elsewhere. It’s about the team here.

“We know what strikers are like but I don’t think it’s an issue with either Daniel or Luis.

“People were talking about Suarez making us a one-man team last year and I kept saying that wasn’t true.

“Luis himself didn’t think like that and when he comes back we’ve got another world-class player to fit in the team.
